programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le
